Overview


The Chromium Oxide Market is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 5.13% to reach USD 353,564.5 Thousand by the end of 2030.


Chromium oxide (Cr2O3) is an inorganic compound and one of the major oxides of chromium. It occurs naturally as a rare mineral, eskolaite. It finds application in coatings owing to its excellent resistance to wear, abrasion, corrosion, and chemicals. In addition, the chromium oxide pigments find a wide range of applications on account of excellent dispersibility and heat stability, weather fastness, hiding power, and batch-to-batch uniformity offered by the pigments.


The paints & coatings industry is one of the largest consumers of chromium oxide, wherein the chromium oxide pigments are used in a broad range of applications including industrial coatings, automotive coatings, exterior coatings, and product finishes. Furthermore, orthopedic implant is the other application where the demand for chromium oxide as a protective coating is growing significantly owing to the anti-reflectivity, high chemical resistance, excellent abrasion resistance, and superior wear resistance offered by the chromium oxide coatings.


Market Dynamics


Chromium oxide pigments play a major role in the major industries such as plastics, building & construction, and refractory. In the plastics industry, they are used for coloring plastics according to the requirements such as good dispersibility (easy to distribute so as to reach their final tinting strength quickly), high thermal stability, high levels of lightfastness (property showing how resistant to fading it is when exposed to light), and weather stability. These pigments are suitable for coloring most types of plastics, including polystyrene, acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), engineering polymers, polyvinyl chloride, and polyolefins. They are applied to packaging materials, plastic tubes used in the construction industry, automobile cockpits, pipes and connector elements, and plastics used in the electrical industry.


In the building & construction industry, oxide pigments are the ideal solution for coloring building materials, concrete, and other construction materials. They are resistant to lime and alkalis, insoluble in water and dilute acids, and highly resistant to weather owing to the chemical composition and structure. Chromium oxide is a green crystal powder with high covering strength, temperature resistant, and excellent sunlight fastness. They offer high tinting strength, color consistency, good dispersion, and weather stability.


The growth of these industries across the globe, especially in the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East & Africa, is likely to favor the market growth in the years to follow.
